Basal cell carcinoma is a skin cancer that can develop on skin overexposed to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays or tanning beds. A diagnosis can be frightening but with proper treatment, you can have a high success rate at removing the cancer. The cancer can grow slowly and may not show serious symptoms for years. For individuals residing in Gwinnett County, basal cell carcinoma (BCC) treatment at Medical Dermatology Specialists in Lawrenceville can help you improve your overall health.

Causes of Basal Cell Carcinoma

Basal cell carcinoma is typically caused by exposure to ultraviolet rays, arsenic or radiation. Genetics can also play a role in the development of this skin condition. This cancerous skin disorder can be more prevalent in males and individuals with fair complexions. For some individuals, it may be difficult to determine the root cause. A Lawrenceville dermatologist may be able to discover the cause of your skin cancer through various testing methods.

Basal Cell Carcinoma Skin Cancer Symptoms

Symptoms and severity may vary depending on the individual. The common symptoms of basal cell carcinoma skin cancer can include shiny lumps, itchy patches or areas of the skin that look like scars. You may also have crusty sores that frequently bleed or have a depression located in the middle of the lump. While rare, basal cell carcinoma can spread throughout the body. Radiation and surgical treatment may become necessary to help completely remove cancerous tissue.

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
